Subject [users@httpd] httpd children receiving SIGHUP
Date Mon, 22 Feb 2010 15:26:56 GMT

I am trying to understand the circumstances under which the httpd parent will SIGHUP its children.
 MaxRequestsPerChild is set to zero and we are still seeing the child processes receive a
SIGHUP after a certain amount of time or requests.  Looking at the server status, thread resources
are not being exhausted.

Is there some other limit if reached would cause the parent to SIGHUP a child?
